Tyson Chicken is also guilty of falsly advertising their products. They promote their chicken as "all natural" even though they treat their chicken with antibiotics!

Basically there saying its "all natural" but is not!!!!!

The controversy over Tyson's antibiotic-free label began in summer 2007, when the company began a massive advertising campaign to tout its chicken as "raised without
**antibiotics**." Already, Tyson has spent tens of millions of dollars this year to date in continuing this campaign.Poultry farmers regularly treat **chickens** and other birds with antibiotics to prevent the development of intestinal infections that might reduce the weight (and profitability) of the birds. Yet scientists have become increasingly concerned that the routine use of antibiotics in animal **agriculture** may accelerate the development of antibiotic-resistant **bacteria** that could lead to a pandemic or other health crisis. Tyson Foods, the world's largest meat processor and the second largest chicken producer in the United States, has admitted that it injects its chickens with antibiotics before they hatch, but labels them as raised without antibiotics anyway. In response, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) told Tyson to stop using the antibiotic-free label. The company has sued over its right to keep using it.
